A Guide to Beer Tasting in Ventura

Happy news; Ventura is making local, and global, craft beer news. With international award-winning breweries already in place, and new breweries opening (and on the way), your glass is, well, overflowing.

Long-time favorites

Visit a few of our long-time favorite breweries like Barrelhouse 101 (that’s right, 101 beers on tap). Added bonus, both serve delicious eats.

New favorites

These two breweries have been with us less than a year, and are already local favorites with both beer connoisseurs and families just looking for a fun night out. In keeping with Ventura’s welcoming, easy-on-the-eye vibe, both have pet-friendly outdoor patios and walls covered with local art.

Coming soon to downtown Ventura!

We can’t wait for these two breweries to open in downtown Ventura!! Soon, we’ll have four craft breweries and a beer garden all within walking distance of the beach, shops, and restaurants. Sounds like a perfect night out.
